check the adjustment of your sunroof, i work at a dealer and i just had a 2006 equinox in with the same exact problem, if you look at where the glass attaches to the sunroof rails you will see 2 torx screws on each side, with the sunroof closed, loosen the screws a little bit, don't remove them, push the glass up untill its level with the roof and the seal around the glass looks even all the way around where it contacts the roof sheet metal, then tighten down the screws while holding the glass in place. if it continues to leak, remove the sun visors and the clips for the sun visors, i believe they are either philips scres or torx, there will be 2 screws on the visor itself, and 1 for the clip. then remove the front pillar trim panel, you will see a small cover in the upper panel, use a pick or a sharp thin tool to pry the cover off and remove the 7mm screw in there, pull the door weatherstrip off and pull the trim panel off, after you do that gently pull the headliner down in the front corner and peek up at the sunroof frame, make sure the drain ose is still connected, the procedure is the same for both left and right sides. this should definitely clear up your problem!

I have not had one person that is happy with the cobalt. Everyone I have known that has one has traded it in before all the other problems occured. . You will have to test areas with water and see if it causes a leak. Also the box has a vent hose that could become clogged. This will also cause the AC condensation to overflow. Run the AC for awhile and see if you get drainage.. If not its clogged

The spare tire well is pooling water, check there. GM knows about it, but won't say it's a factory defect. Sorry, I'm in the same boat you are. See here: http://ww2.justanswer.com/uploads/Bluegorilla/2008-10-09_134337_08-08-057-001a.pdf

Same problem on 06 Chevy equinox lt, Dealer said sunroof needed to get adjusted, its raining right now in San Diego and now the car wont start. water is in the same places, under the dash and floor mats. there is a bulletin posted for these cars about water leaking through several places, copy and paste the numbers along with the sign onto Google and its the first post. its a water leak guide for GM dealerships on the Equinox. hope it helps.

The quick test is to run car with the a/c on in your driveway and check to see if it is dripping water on the ground under the vehicle at the passenger side as that's the side the drain tube is on. If it is then odds are it's not the problem but, just to be sure, at the same time you can pull the carpet back a bit on the passenger side and look to see if any water is dripping out of the heater a/c housing. The other part of the test is to have someone sit inside the vehicle [engine not running] and pour water all around the edges of the windshield on the passenger side first then slowly work up to the sunroof. At some point you should find your leak. I see a lot of leaky windshields that's why I would advise you to start there first. Make sure whoever is in the vehicle is watching down by the front of the floor for any water trickling in as that's usually where you'll find it. If just the compressor and related underhood parts were replaced it shouldn't affect the drain on the evaporator core. Hope this helps you solve the mystery!
